Notes and Editorial Reviews

The vibrant, rising young Canadian soprano Marie-Josée Lord makes her solo recording debut with a selection of personal favorites from her repertoire, including Summertime and My Man’s Gone Now from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, Sì, mi chiamano Mimi from Puccini’s La Bohème, La mamma morta from Giordano’s Andrea Chenier, and the world premiere recording of Le Monde est stone (Opera version) from the Luc Plamondon/Michel Berger blockbuster Starmania.

"The highlight of the evening was...Le monde est stone by Marie-Josée Lord. The finest moment of all, when the osmosis between singer and orchestra was perfect, and a peak of emotion that the soprano, very elegant in her long red gown, transformed into
Read more pure artistry." — Alain de Repentigny, La Presse, [02,02,2010] - (Concert of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra conducted by Kent Nagano.)

"Lord delivered a dramatic and thoughtful reading of Piangerò la sorte mia that brought tears to my eyes." — James Young, Early Music Review, Canada, [07/2010]
